Boozy Watermelon Slushies

No need to pinch yourself, you’re not dreaming.  These spiked icy babies are exactly what you need in your life right now.  Forget that artificial watermelon flavoring crap, it’s summer, go to the store and buy yourself a real watermelon.  I think the next time I make these I might rim the glass with sugar…

Beer Battered Cheese Curds

I get it, curd is not the most appetizing word.  But if curds are wrong I don’t want to be right.  I would officially like to enter my curds into the Guinness World Records for longest cheese pull EVER.  These were epic.  The beer batter is light and crispy and the perfect coating for the ooey-gooey…
